Hi, I am an experienced, qualified and passionate Secondary School English and Literature teacher. In addition, I have over 10 years experience teaching English as a second language to students of Non-English Speaking Backgrounds both overseas and in Australia. Currently, I teach full-time at a high school on the Sunshine Coast, but am available for private tutoring on some weekdays and on weekends. At the secondary school level, I teach Senior English and Literature, as well as Junior English, and have experience teaching History, Geography, and Study of Religion. My specialty is analytical essay and report writing, creative writing, literacy, and all media genres including feature articles and news reports. I am also a qualified Marker for QCAA External Exams in English as well as Literature. I have a Masters of Professional Practice (Creative Writing) from the University of the Sunshine Coast, and a PhD in Creative Writing from Griffith University so I am able to help with assessments at the university level, including analytical writing, referencing conventions and academic research. Previously I have taught the Certificate IV in TESOL course, general ESL English, Business English, English for Special Purposes, Conversational classes, IELTS and English for Academic Purposes, as well as classes specialising in skill areas like speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar. Whilst an undergraduate student, I also studied Law, Modern Asian Studies and Journalism before completing my Bachelor of Social Science (Sociology), so I am capable of working with a wide array of language based subjects depending on students' needs. My lessons are educational and useful as well as enjoyable! I am open to tutoring all nationalities and ages and have experience teaching children. I am very familiar with Senior School curriculum and syllabus requirements and have experience tutoring senior and junior high school students. I am extremely patient and understanding with students who may have learning difficulties.

Experience

I have almost ten years experience working full-time as a Secondary School teacher, along with ten years experience teaching English as a Second Language both overseas and in Australia. As well as experience working with Secondary School students from ages 12 to 18, I have experience working with people from varied non-English speaking backgrounds including Asian, Middle Eastern, South American and European students. Beginning in Japan, I have taught ESL for over ten years, teaching classes ranging from individual lessons to groups of up to 10. I also have full-time teaching experience at various Brisbane language schools teaching classes of up to 30 students. ESL Schools I have worked at include Russo English schools, Viva, Embassy, Shafston, and the Intech Institute of Technology where I worked as a TESOL trainer, designing and delivering an 8 week Certificate IV in TESOL. I have also taught general ESL and IELTS preparation courses at Lexis English Schools at Maroochydore and Noosa.

"Megan is very professional, individual carer & most importantly an expert in English. She worked with my son for three months on reading & Writing skills in preparation for Brisbane State High School Academic Selective Entry Exam. My son has worked with other tutor in the past, but Megan was by far the most knowledgeable, insightful and confidence-boosting coach he had ever had. He genuinely looked forward to his sessions with Megan every week. My son is an average performing student in English reading & writing. Within 3 months she made the average student to a high performer in English reading and writing. We could not recommend a tutor more highly!! Thank you Megan for helping my son to achieve his goal to pass the BSHS selective entry exam."
